Reporters covering Union Minister and Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) Chief Ram Vilas Paswan's filing of nomination for Rajya Sabha were forced out of the Returning Officer's room at the Bihar assembly on Friday.
In a video, the reporters can be seen leaning on the security personnel to get coverage of the event.
The media was then forced out of the Returning Officer's room after Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar objected to the crowd of reporters leaning on the officer too.
